A Few Funnies

Posted by Happy Homemaker UK

To kick off the new week
I want to share with you two photos from last month :)


Stickers added to a 'No Entry' sign in Rome



England is really big into recycling, but I mean really...
Have you seen THIS before?!


Have a fantastic week!

I just burst out laughing. We're used to clothes banks and shoes banks, but I've never seen a bra bank before!

Iota said...

I think the bra recycling schemes are a great idea! But why oh why does EVERYTHING to do with being a woman have to be PINK these days? I find it very irritating.

Loving the bra bank too funny. So nice to meet you just found your beautiful blog and so happy I did. I have enjoyed looking around and I'm now following you, wonderful to meet new friends. Hope you find a spare minute to visit and follow me sometime if you like. Sending you special wishes for a wonderful New Year I’m looking forward to keeping in touch in 2012.

I love the BLUE shoe bank next to the PINK bra bank...imagine a pink shoe bank?

Just saw a shoe recycling bin at the shoe store last week - thought that was a great idea. My kids dumped off their old shoes and left the store wearing new ones.

haha! I agree with Iota, pink is not my favorite either. Hope you are having a great weekend!!

Bra bank! That's a new one on me--at least it's pink!

Loving the bra bank and the stickers on the sign in Rome remind me of that graffiti artist Banksi in London.

Hi Laura - nice to meet you! You have a great blog with so much information. A BRA Bank !!! That is sooo funny! A good idea I suppose, but so funny if you've never seen such a thing before.

chelle said...

ahaha never seen anything like this before, what a laugh! Thanks for sharing them!!

chris said...

Wow, I had no idea anyone would want to recycle bras! How funny.

Molly said...

Too funny --- and not at all subtle! My husband calls that color "pepto bismal" pink.

A lingerie shop here offers a $15 credit those who bring in a used bra, and then they donate the bras to charity.

Never seen a bra bank before! Love the No Entry sign too, very creative! So nice to get a giggle before I start my day :-)

M. y niece of Robynnes nest put me on to you. I KEEP IN TOUCH WITH HER THRU HER BLOG. I laughed at your description of the visit to the dentist. I lived in London from 1952-1955 and evidently Dentistry has not gone ahead. I LIVE IN MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA. I am 83 years old so do not get around like I would like so enjoy reading blogs from people like you who find many things about theEnglish strange .Being British ( until I was about 40) made many of the things you mention not strange to us, but we did think a lot of the English rather eccentric. Keep up with the Blog. Robbyne will be here next month so I will be able to find out about your lucheon with you. Cheers for now from ALICE>

Hi Laura! Same sticker added sign we have also in Islington, London. I also saw two in Paris. And now with your photo in Roma, it's in three countries at least. Bests.

It´s really very funny and very curious! I have never seen any bank like that.
A kiss!
